Sunrise Villa's Secluded Beach
The secluded beach, just a few steps away from Sunrise Villa, awaits you. Take a lounge chair out on the beach to catch some sun, or relax by the oceanfront pool. It's perfect for snorkelling and seashell hunting as well (as seen in the photo at right).

If you want to explore some of the other beaches on Grand Cayman, here are a few to check out:

7-Mile Beach
7-mile beach encompasses so many different activities a day at the beach has the ability to leave your head spinning. Whether or not you enjoy just relaxing and watching the waves roll in or taking your vacation up a notch and parasailing over the Caribbean sea seven mile beach has what you’re looking for. With an abundance of watersports operators and beachside restaurants, you will never be at a loss for what to do on 7-Mile Beach. There is usually parking along the road. Cemetery Beach is known for it’s superb snorkeling but does not offer the convenience of changing facilities, restrooms or watersports operators that many of the other beaches have. But if the underwater beauty of the Cayman Islands is what you seek put cemetery beach at the top of your list.  

Public Beach
For a quieter section of 7-Mile Beach, visit the Grand Cayman public beach (about a mile past the Ritz Carlton) that offers changing and restrooms, showers, a wonderful playground for the kids to enjoy, beach huts, a watersports operator and Calico Jacks beach bar for food and drinks.

Spots Beach
The Spots beach located in Spots Newlands is great if you want to get away from the crowd surrounded by ironshore cliffs with white beaches and the surrounding barrier reef that keep waters calm year round and has huts and benches available for your use.

Smith Cove
Located on south sound this beach offers the convenience of being close to the cruise port to allow for more time enjoying the sun sand and sea with restrooms, picnic benches, showers, phenomenal snorkeling and great photo ops, you should add smith cove to your to do list whilst visiting our beautiful Islands.

West Bay Public Beach
Located after the four-way stop in West Bay with a wide stretch of powder soft sand and an abundance of shady sea grape trees, it's perfect for family get togethers with a dock, restrooms and changing facilities, showers, and huts/benches. You’ll be set for a day of fun in the sun.

Rum Point & East End Beaches
Read our Eastern Loop Tour for more about the Rum Point East End beaches, both located on "our" quiet side of the island. The beautiful beach on the East End (park on the road near The Reef Resort) features a beach bar (photo on right).
